The Commonwealth of Earth, is a Planetary Commonwealth of the United States. The Earth Commonwealth consists of 81 states, 4 Protectorates and 4 Freely Associated States, spread over five continents. There are also several "Military Administrative Zones," established during the Third Mexican War to see to the reconstruction and lawful administration of territories and states defeated during the conflict.

The cradle world of humanity and to a lesser extent the United States, the Earth Commonwealth is the largest and most populous commonwealth in the United States. It is home to America's wealthiest cities as well as the Federal Capitol of Washington DC.

Established as a formal entity only in 2136, the Earth Commonwealth was the product of decades of debate on the consequences of bringing the territories of the much more populous and united planet Mars into the Union. The Commonwealth Capitol is temporarily located in San Francisco pending a formal selection of a permanent planetary capital.

Earth remains the cultural hub of the United States' vast network of territories. Since the first off-Earth colonies on Mars began taking in settlers from Earth, the US population on the planet began to level off, hovering around 600 million people since the 2080s. This is partly due to the decline in birth rates on the planet, however it is also the result of the endless stream of cosmic pioneers seeking new opportunities on the colonial worlds.
